In the first hour, we featured music from Brazilian samba-jazz artist Ana Mazzotti. The label Far Out Recording recently reissued her amazing 1974 debut album “Ninguem Vai Me Segurar.” We played Ana’s sublime version of “Feel Like Makin’ Love” originally recorded by Roberta Flack.
Then we played a new song from Winton Marsalis. The song, “Delilah” comes from the soundtrack to the film “Motherless Brooklyn” written, produced and directed by Edward Norton. The soundtrack also features a song by Thom Yorke and Flea.
Following Winton Marsalis, we featured a track from the latest album “Activate Infinity” from The Bad Plus. The jazz trio will be performing at Chicago’s Old Town School of Folk Music on Dec. 6.
Then The Midnight Hour (Ali Shaheed Muhammad and Adrian Younge) returns with a new song titled “Harmony” featuring Loren Oden. The release is in support of an upcoming tour. Zero 7 graced our playlist with a new single featuring Jem Cook. The band is currently re-issuing their back catalog and recently re-released their esteemed 2004 album “When It Falls” as a deluxe heavyweight vinyl package.
We also played new music from the rap project “Back at the House” from Future Islands’ Samuel T. Herring aka Hemlock Ernst and producer Kenny Segal.
